Hobby Lobby's Steve Green is at it again! Oklahoma's Mustang Board of Education has agreed to promote one of the most immoral and dangerous books the
world has ever seen as a basis of historical truth, morality and rules to live by. The course will be offered to High School students on an elective
basis. Green hopes to expand the curriculum into thousands of classrooms in the near future.
Hobby Lobby’s Steve Green launches a new project: a public school Bible curriculum
The Mustang, Okla., school board voted Monday (April 14) to adopt a Bible course developed by Steve Green, clearing the way for the Hobby Lobby
president, whose suit against the Affordable Care Act is currently before the U.S. Supreme Court, to enter another charged arena at the borderline of
church and state.
In an award acceptance speech last April before the National Bible Association, Green explained that his goals for a high school curriculum were to
show that the Bible is true, that it’s good and that its impact, “whether (upon) our government, education, science, art, literature,
family ... when we apply it to our lives in all aspects of our life, that it has been good.”
It's one thing to study the Bible as literature and mythology. We read Homer's "The Odyssey and the Iliad" in High School. But, it's quite another
for Green to use his $billions$ to try to coop the public education system with his agenda to brainwash students into believing that the Bible
reflects true history and morality.
Of his boss’s 2013 speech, Pattengale said: “The curriculum may or may not espouse those views. The last people (Green) wanted to hire were
scholars who would embellish the facts to support his religious position.” A chapter with the provocative title “How Do We Know That the
Bible’s Historical Narratives are Reliable?” will include diagrams charting the commonality of multidisciplinary scholarly findings with the
biblical account — or the lack of such commonality, he said.
Asked to describe a typical chapter, Pattengale (who also serves on the Religion News Service managing board) outlined a “narrative” segment
on creation that includes a summary of the Bible account; a section on how subsequent scientific discoveries relate to what the Bible says; and a
consideration of key reasons it was written. A sidebar called “Are People Created Equal?” explores the Book of Genesis’ influence on that
idea through history, including the famous phrase from the Declaration of Independence.
Well of course everyone knows that, unlike the US Declaration of Independance, the Bible doesn't teach that all men are created equal! Just look at
how this verse below has influenced supposed Christian governments led by and sanctioned by Christian Churches! But are these the kind of values that
we want to teach our teenagers as a basis for morality and social structure? i don't think so!
When the Lord your God brings you into the land where you are entering to possess it, and clears away many nations before you, the Hittites and the
Girga#es and the Amorites and the Canaanites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and stronger than you,
2 and when the Lord your God delivers them before you and you defeat them, then you shall utterly destroy them. You shall make no covenant with them
and show no favor to them.
3 Furthermore, you shall not intermarry with them; you shall not give your daughters to their sons, nor shall you take their daughters for your sons.
4 For they will turn your sons away from following Me to serve other gods; then the anger of the Lord will be kindled against you and He will quickly
5 But thus you shall do to them: you shall tear down their altars, and smash their sacred pillars, and hew down their Asherim, and burn their graven
images with fire.
6 For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for His own possession out of all the peoples who
are on the face of the earth.
How can we justify our public schools teaching this stuff? How can we justify teaching kids through public education that GOD exists and that after
flying around in a "Pillar of Fire", he incarnated into a human flesh suit, born of a virgin, walked on water and changed water to wine, was purposely
murdered, as a part of his ingenious plan, set up by himself to pay for crimes committed by mythological people 6000 years ago and to pay a human
blood ransom to save humanity from himself, and then rose from the dead and walked around eating and stuff?
How can we justify teaching a book is a basis of morality and truth when it has it's followers gleefully condemning their brothers and sister to an
eternity of torture in hell, and praying for the end of world by way of a holy war, known as Armageddon?
